Hagelin was given a qualifying offer by the Ducks on Monday, the Los Angeles Times reports.

This was a foregone conclusion after the Ducks acquired Hagelin, a restricted free agent, from the Rangers at the draft. He's likely in for a raise this season and could see an uptick in minutes in his new digs, but Hagelin's offensive limitations -- mostly his mediocre shooting ability -- make him best suited for a third-line role.

The Rangers traded Hagelin and the 59th and 179th overall picks in the 2015 NHL Draft to the Ducks in exchange for Emerson Etem and the 41st overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft on Saturday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

The move is likely related to salary, as the Rangers probably believe that Etem can provide them with Hagelin-like production at a reduced cost. Although Hagelin spent most of his time as a member of the Rangers' third line in 2014-15, he will likely slot into a top-six role in Anaheim. Hagelin registered 35 points in 82 games with the Rangers last season, numbers that are likely to improve if he is indeed given a bigger role with the Ducks.

Hagelin was credited with an assist on Rick Nash's first-period goal in Friday's 5-1 triumph over the Lightning.

Hagelin had been held off the score sheet in the Rangers' previous nine games before collecting the helper Friday. The elusive winger can occasionally present matchup problems for the opposition, but that likely won't be the case often against the Lightning, who don't count team speed as one of their weaknesses.

Hagelin scored the series-clinching overtime-winning goal Friday against Pittsburgh in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series.

A clutch performance from Hagelin, who scored his first career NHL playoff game-winning goal. The 26-year-old is now riding a three-game point streak, helping the Rangers eliminate the Penguins in five games and move onto the second round. Skating on a line with Martin St. Louis, Hagelin, who had 17 goals in the regular season, will likely continue being a key contributor throughout the Rangers' postseason run.

Hagelin opened the scoring in Monday's 2-1 victory over the host Penguins.

Hagelin puts the kibosh on his four game point-less drought and nets his 11th career playoff goal. We're sure head coach Alain Vigneault will take it, considering the Swede winger has just seven points in 19 career games versus Pittsburgh.

Hagelin scored an empty-net goal and picked up a power-play assist Tuesday in a win over New Jersey.

The nice night snapped an eight-game skid for Hagelin in which he'd tallied just a lone assist. With a fairly typical total of 35 points on the year, the speedy winger is of use mostly in deep leagues.

Hagelin logged an assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over Minnesota.

Just more of the same from the 26-year-old Swede who manages to find the scorer's sheet just enough to remain on everyone's radar, but not nearly on their roster. Hags, who helped form the team's third line during Thursday's win with returning veteran Martin St. Louis (MCL) and budding forward Kevin Hayes now has 33 points through 77 games.

Hagelin found the back of the net in the first period of Wednesday's 3-1 win over Washington.

Hagelin has really slowed as of late, having posted just a goal and an assist in his last eight games. Despite the lull, the 26-year-old Swedish forward has 15 goals and 30 points in 66 games played, leaving him within reach of setting a new career-high (38 in 2011-12) in points if he can string together a few more night's like Wednesday.

Hagelin scored a goal, added on an assist and went plus-2 Thursday in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks.After two games off the scoresheet, Hags found his way back on. February's been his best month, as he has six points in nine games; that's as many points as he notched in both November and December, but he played 14 and 12 games in those months, respectively. An uptick in shot attempts has accompanied this rise in scoring, which may indicate that it's fairly sustainable. Still, Hagelin will need to pick up the pace a bit to hit 40 points for the season.

Hagelin notched his third game-winning goal of the season in Thursday's 6-3 triumph over the Avalanche.Hagelin has picked up his activity of late, producing a point in three straight games while putting 14 shots on net. The speedy winger has always brought a decent dosage of offense to the third line, and is really starting to connect with the equally red-hot Kevin Hayes. Hagelin bears watching in deeper formats.
